    "Let’s pretend we were going to take the golden rule seriously. Combine that with the scientific knowledge we have concerning animal sentience and the depth of their emotions. If you were a cat, would you want to be tortured by a sadistic teenager? If you were a monkey would you want to be abused by a cruel vivisector? If you were a lion would you want to be hunted down or imprisoned in a zoo? If you were a cow, would you want to be ‘humanely’ slaughtered? The answer is a resounding ‘No.’ Clearly, then, the only morally acceptable conclusion (from these premises) is Animal Liberation."

    “To a man whose mind is free there is something even more intolerable in the sufferings of animals than in the sufferings of man. For with the latter it is at least admitted that suffering is evil and that the man who causes it is a criminal. But thousands of animals are uselessly butchered every day without a shadow of remorse. If any man were to refer to it, he would be thought ridiculous. And that is the unpardonable crime.” (v)

    After the agony of giving birth a mother cow will not get to keep her baby.
    A dairy cow will be artificially inseminated so that she gives birth every year to keep her milk flowing. In her life time she may have four, five or more babies stolen from her.
    When she's too worn out to be profitable she will be slaughtered....she is used, abused and discarded like rubbish at a fraction of her natural life span.
    Her sons will either be shot at birth, sent to veal farms or slaughtered for low grade meat and leather. Her daughters will be reared to become dairy cows like their mother and the whole sorry cycle continues.

    Meat Market: Animals, Ethics, & Money

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lXM3GQGwfTY



    A presentation by Erik Marcus.

    Every generation a book comes along that reshapes society${q}s attitudes toward food. Meat Market is such a book, and it offers the most compelling critique of animal agriculture yet set to print. In his talk Erik looks at the history of animal agriculture and charts the decline of its ethical standards. Despite the worsening plight of animals, his message is hopeful and optimistic. He offers strategies for meat-lovers and vegetarians alike to combat cruelty to animals. He also shows how easy it is to fill the diet with delicious, healthy, and humanely produced foods.

    A downed dairy cow. Dairy cows whose bodies have been so worn out that they can no longer produce milk, typically at around five years of their otherwise 20-25 year lifespan, are sent to slaughter to be eaten.

    I can not watch this. Mad Cows have personalities, and awareness. Too many demonic entities are allowed to incarnate in to this planet passing by from helish planets and they 'bring' their individual unconscious experiences. Mad after this life back to hell..
    the worst is that those unconsicous ones feed with blood their children and lie to them.

    Prior to being hung upside down by their back legs and bled to death at the slaughterhouse, pigs are supposed to be ‘stunned’ and rendered unconscious. However, stunning at slaughterhouses is terribly imprecise, and often conscious animals are hung upside down, kicking and struggling, while a slaughterhouse worker tries to ‘stick’ them in the neck with a knife. If the worker is unsuccessful, the pig will be carried to the next station on the slaughterhouse assembly line — the scalding tank — where he/she will be boiled, alive and fully conscious.

    Tourists pay $100 to shoot monkeys in Africa!

    Companies like Aney Safais Aspelling are selling monkeys to be killed for $100, of course they call it hunting so that means it is OK!
    The sane among us know really it should be called "sick sadistic blood lust killing" though.

    What kind of pathetic excuse of a man must you be to take pleasure in killing such a small helpless monkey.

    After going undercover in the slaughterhouse to write this book the author said he could never again eat an animal - maybe people need that hit in the heart to stop them ---- "I am haunted not by the more expected, sensational details of slaughter — the violence, the blood, the suffering of animals and humans. True, all of these are present. But what is far more lingering and disturbing is the way
    this work of killing is utterly mundane: the monotony and the division of labor for the line workers; the desperate drive to keep the line moving; the quality control records that must be falsified in order to meet USDA standards; and, most of all, the industry’s reliance on this monotony and desperation to keep the killing line moving without hesitation and with no questions asked. These are the things that worry at my heart and mind". ~ T. Pachirat

    While egg laying hens are bred specifically for high volume egg production, broiler chickens (chickens bred specifically for meat) have been manipulated, through selective breeding techniques, to make them grow at around twice their natural rate. They grow so big and so fast that their legs are unable to support their weight and many collapse. Broilers are slaughtered at just six weeks of age - wh
    en they are still immature.

    They are crammed into huge, foul-smelling, typically windowless sheds for the duration of their six-week growing period. Often, a modern broiler house holds around 45,000 birds. Broiler houses are not cleaned during the growing cycle, which results in the accumulation of faeces in the litter. Each bird is allowed an area no bigger than an A4 sheet of paper and must push his or her way through a solid mass of other chickens to reach food and water points. Some lame birds die from starvation and dehydration as they are unable to reach food and water points. The combination of accelerated growth rates and unhealthy living conditions accounts for the huge number of birds who die prematurely. They are vulnerable to heart attacks, septicaemia and fatty livers and kidneys. They also suffer a high incidence of deformities, caused by arthritis, together with the stress of carrying so much weight on young bones. Nearly one-third have difficulty walking or cannot walk at all, despite the fact that many of the weaker birds are 'culled' inside the sheds. Many broiler chickens also die from ascites: their growth rate is so rapid that their heat, lungs and circulatory system struggle to maintain sufficient oxygen levels. This results in breathlessness and distended abdomens caused by a build-up of yellow or bloodstained fluid. Respiratory or heart failure kills one in 20 birds. Severe crowding and filthy conditions also leaves them highly susceptible to chronic respiratory diseases.

    Rapa das bestas is ancient CRUEL BARBARIC AND PRIMITIVE Spanish festival in Galicia Spain, which is also termed as ‘Taming the Beasts’, in which men and women from all the ages wrestle untamed horses to the ground with their bare hands without any weapons and cut their manes and tails..causing huge suffering and injuries to the horses !! The event take place every year on the first Saturday of July.
    Rapa das bestas is a three day festival starting from first Saturday of July and most of the men and women of the village participate in the wrestling against around 600-700 horses of different breeds including stallions, mares, and foals. The meaning of “Rapa das bestas” is “the reaping of the horses” and it’s a tradition where people show their courage against these beasts. This festival is also celebrated to declare the village’s independence and virility..

    Would this habit of eating animals not require that we slaughter animals that we knew as individuals, and in whose eyes we could gaze and see ourselves reflected, only a few hours before our meal?

    The invisible psychic agony of millions of cruelly slaughtered animals saturates our earth’s atmosphere and the whole race suffers in sympathy. We make intimate mental contact with these psychic terrors of our little sisters and brothers o
    f the animal world when we devour their fear-shattered bodies. Out vague fear of impending danger, our troubled sleep, our dread of the future, and numerous other unidentified mental complexes may and often are the echo fears of the brutes whose flesh we have entombed in our stomach.

    This photo was taken moments after the calf was born, and moments before she was taken away from her mother and wheeled into a veal crate. Cows are impregnated repeatedly and have their calves taken away so that we can drink their milk. ~ Jo-Anne McArthur

    Farmageddon - The truth about the food and dairy industry

    Post  burgundia on Mon Sep 10, 2012 8:04 am



    Filmmaker Kristin Canty's quest to find healthy food for her four children turned into an educational journey to discover why access to these foods was being threatened. What she found were policies that favor agribusiness and factory farms over small family-operated farms selling fresh foods to their communities. Instead of focusing on the source of food safety problems — most often the industrial food chain — policymakers and regulators implement and enforce solutions that target and often drive out of business small farms that have proven themselves more than capable of producing safe, healthy food, but buckle under the crushing weight of government regulations and excessive enforcement actions.
